(...I am a born lover of repetition...) Coordinating, anticipating our moves, enter the weavers of life. Alienating, making damn sure that the truth lies hidden in plain sight. (close eyes) A sleight of hand turns the cat's tail into a sword. Deserted highways, the blue light says you're not a god. Among the side-effects of solace found in grains of salt, the breathing room is lessened, questioning nothing at all. Contact detected, a nervous cringe falls behind on memory. Recurring plot patterns blur the eye, the siren numbs the primitive. Filterless, screaming mad as a dancing bear, MY SOUL POLLUTED! Murder-ballad troubadour, a mummer in shades of madness. Mr. Sands dreaming of vertigo, a broken string among the leading tones. My lucid term now over, I'll face storms of fine sand with foreign names…
